Maluginensis 2. L. Cornelius Ser. F. P. N. MALUGINENSIS, consul B. C. 459 with Q. Fabius Vibulanus. The consuls of this year carried on war against the Volsci and the Aequi with great glory and success. According to some accounts Maluginensis took Antium, and we learn front the triumphal Fasti that he obtained a triumph for his victory over the Antiates. (Liv. 3.22-24; Dionys. A. R. 10.20, 21; Diod. 11.86.) He is mentioned as one of the defenders in the senate of the second decemvirate in B. C. 449, because his brother Marcus was one of the number (Liv. 3.40; Dionys. A. R. 11.15); but if we can rely upon the Fasti, in which Marcus is called SER., L. F. N., we must understand frater and a)delfo/s to mean first cousin, and not brother.
ent from the city. The tribune C. Terentillus Arsa took advantage of the absence of the consuls to propose a rogation for appointing five commissioners, who might draw up laws to limit the power of the consuls. Thereupon Fabius called together the senate and inveighed with such vehemence against the rogation and its author, that even both the consuls could not have inspired greater fear. On the advice of his colleagues Terentillus withdrew his proposal. (Liv. 3.9; Dionys. A. R. 9.69.) In B. C. 459 Fabius was consul a third time with L. Cornelius Maluginensis. In this year he defeated the Volscians, who had laid siege to Antium, and also the Aequians, who had taken Tusculum, and on account of these victories celebrated a triumph on his return to Rome. In the following year, B. C. 458, when the two consuls marched with their two armies against the Sabines and Aequians, Fabius was left behind with a third for the protection of Rome. This is the account of Dionysius, but Livy simply say

and declared that soon after the plague he and his elder brother fell in with a party of patrician youths who came rushing through the Subura, when their leader Kaeso knocked down his brother, who was still feeble from the sickness he had just got over, and injured him so much that he died shortly afterwards. Dionysius makes Volscius tribune of the plebs in this year. In consequence of this testimony Kacsso was condemned. The patricians in revenge charged Volscius with falsehood ; and in B. C. 459 the quaestors accused him before the comitia of the curiae or the centuries, of having borne false witness against Kaeso, but the tribunes prevented them from prosecuting the charge. In the following year, B. C. 458, L. Cincinnatus, the father of Kaeso, was appointed dictator, and presided in the comitia for the trial of Volscius. The tribunes dared not offer any further opposition, and Volscius was obliged to go into exile. (Liv. 3.13, 24, 25, 29 ; Dionys. A. R. 10.7; Niebuhr, Hist. of Ro
